this action, the president has chosen to deliberately sabotage any chance of enacting bipartisan reforms that he claims to seek. as i told the president yesterday, he's damaging the presidency itself. in the days ahead, the people's house will rise to this challenge. we will not stand idle as the president undermines the rule of law in our country and places lives at risk. we'll listen to the american people. we'll work with our members and we will work to protect the constitution of the united states. that was just this morning, a few hours ago, warning from house speaker john boehner following president obama's historic move to protect millions of undocumented immigrants here in the u.s. republicans are vowing political and legal retaliation following last night address. it was a bold move by president
8:42 am
obama but one he says was necessary in order to help fix a broken immigration system. university of san francisco political science professor corey cook joins us live on the phone with his take on the fallout. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> thank you for joining us. first off, what did you think about the president's speech last night? >> i thought it was a strong speech. i think he not only laid out the policy and the moral grounds for providing temporary relief from deportation but he provided a very clear constitutional ground. he's often criticized as being -- he was explaining very clearly his legal authority to make this action. >> we heard from the house speaker this morning saying that the gop will act. a lot of discussion about some options. they could shut down the government or impeach the president, cut off funding, block confirmation of the president's nominees. but they have to be careful because they want to make sure
8:43 am
they don't undermind the prospects in the next election. >> that's right. on election night we wondered whether essentially the 2014 election would be the prelude to 2016. we're hearing from the speaker who suggests the 2016 election is about to start. it's the same sort of campaign rhetoric we heard a few months ago. and it clearly is now being read into the 2016 campaign. >> let's put the politics aside for a moment. where do we go from here as far as illegal or undocumented immigrants? this executive action is a temporary reprieve. it's not a freebie. there are a lot of hoops to jump through. it's a three-year provation. any fundamental weakness of orders. this is the thing that gets lost in all of the rhetoric around this. they can be overridden by congressional action or overridden by future presidents while this is a significant and
8:44 am
historic order at the same time, the ball is in congress's report, they can pass legislation and this could very well be the impetus for boek side. this is a small piece of what is a significant challenge for the country. either this will be the impetus for comprehensive reforms because neither side should be fully happy with this step or this will be the end game and we'll contest this through, you know, government shutdowns and other ways to try to get at the president. >> what is your take on this action for the whole country, even if people are not undocumented immigrants? is this gonna be good for the country or a negative for the country? >> in my view, this is a half step. i think there's profound need for immigration reform. i think this gets part of the way there. all this is the president saying as commander-in-chief, he has the power to prioritize
8:45 am
deportations. he's done more deport argses han any president in history and now he's saying we don't have the resources to deport 112 million immy -- immigrants. my sense, this is part of the way there. it will be significant in a lot of communities. it will be significant in the bay area. it's still not the steps to ensure that the immigrants -- immigrants contribute to the economy and pay their taxes. >> what could this mean for president obama 'legacy? >> i think this is a prelude to the last two years. this is the framing of the last two years. either this becomes a way for the congress and the president to say let's stop the bickering and reach a real compromise. no side is happy with this action fully or it becomes the end game and we'll spend the last two years wondering if the president will be impeached and this becomes the last significant action of his
8:46 am
presidency. >> stay tuned. thank you. >> thank you. >> appreciate it. that was university of san francisco political professor corey cook. right now. president obama is on his way to las vegas where he will be speaking at the same place where he unveiled his blueprint for immigration reform back in january 2016. he will be speaking this afternoon about 1:00. we'll have full coverage online and on the news at 5:00 and 6:00. >> all right. the other hot button issue, more arrests in ferguson, missouri. protesters waiting for a grand jury decision in the police shooting death of 18-year-old michael brown the at least two people arrested yesterday for blocking a street and demanding the indictment of police officer darren wilson. ferguson missouri has been sense waiting to see if the officer will be charged. the grand jury will hold its final meeting today whether to indict officer wilson. now, officer wilson doesn't think he will be indicted with the shooting death. michael brown. reportedly, that's what he told a business manager from the st.
8:47 am
louis police officers association. wilson has stayed out of the public eye since the shooting in august but insinces he did nothing wrong -- insists he did nothing wrong. there are reports he's in the final staging of negotiations to resign from the police department. from another story we'll keep a close eye on here at ktvu. sal is keeping a close eye on the traffic on friday. it's dry. friday light? >> a little bit. >> i would say so. it's better than yesterday for sure. wednesday was the worst day. right now as we look at some of these pictures. there's one problem. there is a truck that's trying to get out -- out of san francisco and it made contact with one of the barriers at the bay bridge. a stalled truck there is and northbound 101 is very slow leaving san francisco. it's kind of hard to see because of the dense fog. but you can see for yourself. this is an unexpected delay getth out. now, coming into san francisco, that is not affected. the bay bridge toll plaza delay
